Sinead and Daniel were told the chemotherapy wouldn’t be continued because she was too ill.

The doctor told her: “Your quality of life would be so poor it would make it harder to spend time with your family.”

Instead the doctors could only offer her pain relief and help to fend off any infections or nausea as a result of the cancer.

But after being previously told she could have three or four months left, the doctor had to tell Sinead how it was actually a matter of weeks.

She asked him: “You make it sound like I’m on the way out.

“You’ve always been straight with us Mr Merchant. I’m struggling because I don’t want to know, not really.

“But what if I end up wasting time? What if I’m sat there in front of The Chase and there’s important stuff I should be doing. People I should be seeing.

“Just a ballpark figure, I won’t throw it back in your face. If I manage longer I won’t resent that.

“Are we talking a couple of months, a month, weeks?”

She broke down in tears and hugged her husband Daniel who looked shellshocked by the news.
